7:45:11 pm ErickTaft: RT @dbolen: Q1 local talent hasn’t “made it” to the big time to national prominence #astdchapters
7:45:34 pm steve_maul: Q1) See thought leadership in both “big names” and “local talent”. Big names are often big because they got published #astdchapters
7:45:56 pm dbolen: @ErickTaft you can have local thought leaders too! #astdchapters
7:46:25 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen I know! That didn’t come out the way I wanted it to – like the way you stated it better. #astdchapters
7:46:55 pm steve_maul: Q1 Big names are often first to bring an issue to the table. They find a platform on which to build their reputation #astdchapters
7:47:07 pm dbolen: Q1 is publishing a differentiator since you can use a self publisher like Lulu? #astdchapters
7:47:09 pm Charnell_W: Q1) Local talent often doesn’t have the level of expertise, at least in my local area #astdchapters

7:48:40 pm Charnell_W: Q1) Name recognition of the “thought leaders” (& those widely published) can be a bigger draw #astdchapters
7:48:49 pm steve_maul: Q1 being published by a recognized house carries more weight (and better distribution). #astdchapters
7:49:53 pm dbolen: Q1 does published presence out weigh blogging or some online presence? #astdchapters
7:49:54 pm britz: RT @dbolen @ErickTaft you can have local thought leaders too! #astdchapters
7:51:22 pm ErickTaft: @dbolen I think using self-publishing platforms will make it less of a differentiator (i.e. @jaycross) #astdchapters
7:51:37 pm ErickTaft: RT @Charnell_W: Q1) Name recognition of the “thought leaders” (& those widely published) can be a bigger draw #astdchapters
7:51:52 pm dbolen: Q2) What are the advantages of showcasing local talent? #astdchapters #astdchapters
7:51:56 pm Charnell_W: good point>RT @ErickTaft: @Charnell_W I found that many do-just need platform (& confidence?) 2 share expertise. #astdchapters #astdchapters
7:52:05 pm steve_maul: Q1 IMO, you can create ur own content, when others make a market 4 ur opinion (published, blog, etc.), you become a big name #astdchapters
7:54:04 pm ErickTaft: Q2) Besides cheaper? It is a great way to learn what others are doing in your local area & share practices. #astdchapters
7:54:54 pm Charnell_W: Q2) People want to connect w/ and be inspired by people in their community. Yeah cheapter 2! #astdchapters

8:03:16 pm steve_maul: RT @ErickTaft: Q3) risk is if the local talent seems to come from the same companies every meeting. (Esp in smaller cities) #astdchapters
8:04:04 pm ErickTaft: @LandDDave Being in a smaller community, that has happened to us before. #astdchapters
8:04:36 pm Charnell_W: Or same industry sector>>RT @ErickTaft: Q3) Another risk is if the local talent seems to come from same companies every mtg #astdchapters
8:04:54 pm ErickTaft: @steve_maul That is one of the biggest complaints our board receives. #astdchapters

8:05:36 pm steve_maul: RT @Charnell_W: Or same industry sector>> … good point! #astdchapters
8:06:15 pm LandDDave: I can see an issue amongst chapters too. For example, I’m giving the same presentation at our chapter and ASTDNY a week apart #astdchapters
